Moleskine Project VI

by ncwinters on July 8, 2017

The Moleskine Project is back, in its sixth incarnation.

Good friend and fellow PRISMA Collective artist Rodrigo Luff has invited me once again to the annual Moleskine Project at Spoke Art. I’m excited to once again partake in this project, where artists are asked to create an original piece of art in a Moleskine sketchbook, which will then be framed and shown in a gallery setting. It’s an interesting take on a gallery show, as many artists keep a sketchbook (or several) and this venue showcases the sketchbook as art object in itself.

As one who doesn’t usually draw at length in a sketchbook (though I own several) this is always a fun excersise, and I do my best to treat the medium as originally intended, and fill the pages with an elaborate detailed rambly drawing. I always end up on the fence of wanting to do this on a regular basis after this project, but ultimately, I would prefer to work on individual sheets of paper rather than in a book. One of thse days I may actually fill a sketchbook, but this gallery show project is also telling for me in that most of my sketchbooks only end up with a drawing or two inside anyway.

The show opens Satuday, July 8 at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco. My contribution to the show: “Lucid Dream,” pen & ink and ink wash in moleskine notebook. Please contact Spoke Art for purchase inquiries. For those intrigued by the Moleskine Project, there’s also a hard back book available with previous Moleskine Project works in for your purchasing pleasure. I’m honored to be included. You can find out more about that here.

Enjoy!
